Pochettino Wins Long-Awaited First Career Trophy as PSG Claims 8th Straight Trophee Des Champions

The wait is finally over for Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine manager was not able to win a trophy win during his time with Espanyol, Southampton and Tottenham. But now, Pochettino has claimed his first career trophy as Paris Saint-Germain defeated Olympique de Marseille to won yet another Trophee des Champions final.

PSG got the scoring rolling in the first half thanks to a Mauro Icardi goal. This came on the heels after the side scored two goals that were subsequently ruled as being offside.

PSG added another goal in the second half thanks to a Neymar penalty goal.

And while Marseille scored a late goal to put the side at within a goal away from tying the game up, PSG held on to preserve the key 2-1 win.

For PSG, this is the eight straight Trophee des Champions final win for the side. PSG opened this streak when it defeated Bordeaux in the 2013 Trophee des Champions final. And since then, PSG has gone on to win every single one of these finals.

PSG also extended its all-time lead to 10 Trophee des Champions final wins.

PSG now continues ahead with its Ligue 1 campaign with an upcoming away fixture against Angers.
